Default [REPORTED]Sling load is going crazy

Hello Huey pilots,
I'm happy that Argo Campaign misson 3 is working with todays Hotfix 3 for DCS2.5.
But I'm having trouble with my sling load. I'ts behaving like jet propelled. Even if I fly straight with auto pilot the sling load manages to swing above the height of the helicopter. I attached a track showing this.
This is the first time I'm being challenged with sling loads, I have never tried it in earlier DCS versions.
Please dont' judge my terrible flying skills, just the physics of the sling load...
Anybody else experiencing this? I don't think it's normal, is it?

No, this is not normal. Here is a link to the yt-video from rge75 who had made similar experiences:

I haven't flown the Huey in ages -but I do know going too fast with a SL in the Hip means your load will start getting a mind of its own -as it surely would at too high a sspeed in RL?

I limit my load-carrying speed to under 150kmh (around 100mph) and have no trouble.

I've done sling loads in real life, but only the hook end lol

I tend to keep my speed down when doing cargo lifts and listen to the crew hints

That's interesting to know -BN do you know if there's a limit on speed with SL's?
I can't see a helo being able to go all-out when it has something dangling around underneath it on a rope...

I wouldn't know without looking up,

My guess would be it depends on the helicopter the load and weather.

I have rigged small loads like nets and large loads like land rovers with trailers attached, I trained with Gazelles, and operationally worked lynx, puma, sea king, and chinook.

Always seemed like they were not hanging around when I was under them

I'm limited to 80 knots with a bucket on a 25 foot line on the huey. On a 150 foot long line it could be up to 100 knots depending on the weight and characteristics of the load. But it can vary wildly. I had a friend with an odd shaped load on a 50 foot line and he couldn't do better than 40 knots with a drogue on it.
